FRONTERA INVISIBLE

NICOLÁS RICHAT & NICO MUZI

ARGENTINA/BELGIO | 2016 | 28'

“Frontera Invisible” is the true story of communities trapped in the middle of the world’s longest war, in which big landowners’ rush for palm oil to produce ‘green’ fuel has displaced peasant farmers and indigenous people. It has destroyed natural habitats and concentrated land in the hands of the rich.

Nicolàs Richat (Argentina, 1980) worked for Buenos Aires TV channel Ciudad Abierta, where he experimented with different audiovisual formats and interacted with prominent artists from Buenos Aires and Latin America. As of 2008, Nicolas started freelancing for TV, Cinema and Advertising projects. From mid 2010 until early 2012 he went back to cultural TV channel Ciudad Abierta as the Art Director, focusing his work in the recuperation of the visual identity of the only public broadcaster in the City of Buenos Aires. During those two years, he helped create 120 hours of TV content, 15 series, 132 programme episodes and 446 micro-programmes.

Nico Muzi (Argentina, 1980) is the Director of Communications for Transport & Environment, Europe’s leading NGO campaigning for cleaner transport and fuels. A tireless storyteller, Nico has told many stories in written and visual form. But “Frontera Invisible” is his first incursion on film documentary. He has been communicating on the biofuels business since 2010 while consulting a top biofuels producer for global PR firm Weber Shandwick. After joining Transport & Environment, Nico campaigned extensively on the social and environmental impact of biofuels. While digging deeper in the matter, Nico developed the idea of the new biofuels frontiers, beyond the well-documented cases of deforestation and peatland drainage in Indonesia and Malaysia. That was the first step of a journey that took Gancho and Transport & Environment to Colombia. Other frontiers Nico would love to explore are: Perú, Congo, Papua New Guinea, among others.
